So I'm reading this facebook conversation about everybody ripping on twilight and kissing harry potter's ass, and I feel like defending twilight. I guess I have a natural instinct to stick up for the underdog no matter what it is lol. *sigh*
Harry Potter is just as stupid as Twilight to me. The characters aren't very interesting at all, they are hugely cliched and stereotypical. J.K Rowling knows how to please a crowd, but she isn't particularly creative or poetic at all.
Bella vs. Hermione:
So there's two camps of people. People who want women to fawn over guys and be in love and be okay with that, and people who want women to always be tough and go their own way. I don't understand why we can't take a 'happy medium' approach with this. Sometimes people want to connect with others and be coddled by them, sometimes they want to say 'fuck off' and fight everything and hate the world. Sometimes they just prefer to keep people at a distance, and want to figure things out logically and rationally. Who are you to say what is right for each and every woman?
somebody wants to be in a relationship and you say they are 'being codependent.' somebody wants to be really headstrong and look after themselves and help the world objectively -- you say they are being a heartless bitch. The ladies just can't win can they?
